Ep.245 | 5 Minute Drill | Your Relationship Deserves More Than Your Best Self

When your marriage or relationship (or friendship) is operating at its best, what does it look like? How are you feeling? What are you thinking? Believing? How are you acting? 

The truth is, you know those answers. But the reality – you’re not leveraging them enough in your day-to-day interactions. And when that happens, your relationship has a much better chance to get stale, boring, or worse…non-existent (speaking from firsthand experience here). 

In today’s 5 Minute Drill, I’m going to share a strategy that I shared with one of my private clients that created a HUGE light bulb moment for him, and has since been a game-changer for his marriage. It’s a slight paradigm shift, BUT IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. So, if you want to bring your A-game to your interactions AND conflicts with your spouse, significant other, and friends and prevent your relationships from getting blah, then lock in to today’s episode.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • How leadership expert Patrick Lencioni’s approach to core values applies to your relationships.
  • Why bringing your best self into your relationship isn’t enough.
  • A strategy for elevating your marriage and relationships.


It’s not about manufacturing better character traits or habits. It’s about pulling out the best of what’s already in you.” – J.R.
